All most anything being a textiles and clothing college grad If it can be sewn I tried to sew it.

What is your satisfaction level with this machine?

As i stated earlier I still love my machine after over 20 years of sewing with it. I'm still finding new things to do with it.

My favorite taste my machine does is the buttonholes. On my competition pieces and the 4-Hers that have used my machine to do their's we always get comments from this judge how they look so smooth. It's the way they are sewn. The long sides of the buttonhole are sewn in the same direction (no fabric drag). It sews the the one side and the ending bar tack then stabilizes the other side with tiny stitches to the starting point and then sews the beginning bar tack and sews the other side in the same direction as the first side. They can be a pain to remove so you do samples in mock fabric, interfacing and facing.

Lessons Learned

  • I would buy this machine again. But I did my work when I purchased the machine. Compared it with other machines from the same company and other companies. I knew what I was getting.
